Easter Sunday

Cameron had a local family out on the boat on Sunday. The weather could not have been better for the charter. They cruised from Oban up to Castle Stalker then over to Kingairloch for lunch. On the way back they spotted 2 sea eagles and enjoyed some amazing sights of the Great Glen and Lismore lighthouse. One of the passengers was Susie Wolff who is a world leading racing driver and in the ranks of Formula Racing. Great to see her back on the West.

VIP Transfers

The boats have been busy carrying out important transfers. The First one was from The Seaplane to a luxury cruise ship for a meeting. Then later on in the day it was another run back to the Seaplane.
Cameron had to run some guests from Kingairloch Estate to Glensanda for a private tour then dropped off at Isle of Eriska.
The final transfer was from Loch Aline to Mull, as the clients had missed the last ferry and required to get to Glengorm Castle.

Wed Apr 9


The good weather is set to return. The boats have been out and about on the regular 2hr Wildlife trip and the Tobermory day trip. The eagles have been a common sight and more porpoise and seabirds spotted.

Mon Apr 7

Mirror Flat

Cameron was back to Eriska for a quick 1.5 hr private charter. The weather in the morning was not ideal but it did clear in the afternoon. The wind dropped to noting and despite no sunset it was still an amazing run out. They stopped to look at Duart Castle and Lismore Lighthouse.

Barra by night

Struan received a call at 1700 for an urgent part to be taken to Barra. So the part was delivered by motorbike from Glasgow to Oban where they met the team waiting at the North pier. At 2010 with an amazing sunset the team headed North West. Then at 2310 they arrived at Castle Bay and the engineers took the part. The part was required for a vital island link.
The calm seas and no swell allowed a smooth run back to base for 0245.

Sunset Runs

The team have had a few runs over to Mull. As the ferry timetable changes from winter to summer there is still a reduced service, so Coastal Connection have been keeping the locals happy. Some great sunsets too.

Mon Mar 31


Cameron had some regular guests out on the new boat. The weather could not have been better. The seas were mirror flat and the wildlife was out and about. They spotted numerous white tailed sea eagles. The common seals were basking in the sun, making the most of the great weather.
After a wander in Tobermory and a bite to eat they cruised back to Kingairloch.

Tiree Transfer

Struan had a perfect day to run out to Tiree. It was a quick run out and after the passengers had a meeting on the island they powered back. In the Sound of Mull it was mirror flat. The client was delighted with the safe and efficient service.
